Pass the Mike

Democracy is about giving everybody a voice, but that is not so easy if there is only one microphone. Enter the “Sputmik”, a colorful gadget designed to let anybody who wants to take the floor at a public meeting or lecture. Developed as a collaboration between Design Continuum, based in Boston, and M.I.T., the Sputmik (it’s a pun of Sputnik) is a basketball-size, completely wireless microphone that’s well padded and easy to handle so crowds can pass it overhead like a beach ball a rock concert or even toss it from person to person.
